Preparing Your 4-Door Bronco for Summer Adventures: A Guide To Upgrades and Accessories
As we welcome in the warm breezes and longer days of summer, it's the perfect time to gear up for unforgettable outdoor adventures. The new generation 4-Door Ford Bronco, with its rugged charm and impressive capabilities, stands as the ideal companion for your summer excursions. However, in order to truly harness the full potential of this iconic vehicle, a few upgrades and accessories are essential. Let's dive into what makes the Bronco special and explore some aftermarket modifications that will elevate your summertime adventures.

The New Gen Ford Bronco: Built for the Wild

The new generation Ford Bronco rekindles the spirit of adventure with its impressive features and capabilities. Its design pays homage to its storied past while incorporating modern technology and performance. With options ranging from the base model to the more robust Badlands and Wildtrak editions, the Bronco is engineered to tackle any terrain. Key specifications include its terrain management system, known as the G.O.A.T. modes (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain), which optimizes driving dynamics for various environments. Additionally, the available Sasquatch Package with its 35-inch tires, locking differentials, and high ground clearance embodies the Bronco's readiness for off-road dominance.

Summer-Ready Upgrades for your Bronco

To make the most of the summer, consider some these aftermarket upgrades that enhance performance, comfort, and aesthetics, ensuring your Bronco is equipped for any adventure.

Suspension Lift Kits: Elevating your Bronco with a high-quality suspension Lift Kit not only adds to its aggressive stance but also improves ground clearance and suspension articulation. This is crucial for navigating rough trails and overcoming large off-road obstacles. If you value affordability over anything else, consider a kit like the Zone Offroad 2" Lift Kit. This system props up your ride just enough to accommodate larger tires and wheels so you can tackle any terrain with an extra boost of confidence. This kit is super easy to install, but it's important to note that it won't improve ride comfort or capability for your adventures. If you're after a more complete system, check out the Bilstein B8 6100 Shock Package. Not only do these shocks lift your Bronco up higher off the ground, they provide increased damping performance so you can experience excellent off-road performance, increased wheel travel, and better handling. Each Shock utilizes self-adjusting deflective disc valving which adapts to different road conditions and provides excellent response over just about any terrain.

Wheels and Tires: Upgrading to a set of all-terrain or mud-terrain tires mounted on durable, lightweight wheels can dramatically improve your Bronco's off-road capability and safety. Look for tires that offer a balance of traction, durability, and comfort for long drives like the Falken WildPeak Tires. Available with various sizes, offsets and backspacing, these WildPeak tires deliver impressive levels of performance for both on and off road applications. Falken designs these tires with an interlocking tread design that increases stability and ejects mud when you're caught in the thick stuff. Pairing them with stylish wheels enhances your Bronco's appearance and reduces unsprung weight for better performance. If you want to seriously elevate your Bronco's off-road capabilities, consider upgrading to the new Method Bead Grip Wheels. These wheels feature small ridges inside the wheel lip to lock the tire bead into place, allowing you to navigate over just about any terrain on the planet. You can read more about this impressive wheel technology over on our Method Bead Grip Blog!

Exterior Accessories: For those sunny days and starry nights, a Safari Soft Top is a must-have. The Bestop sunshades we offer in our inventory provide instant shade and protection from the sun while allowing for an open-air experience. Additionally, you can install a sturdy front bumper like the Warn Elite Front Bumper with Baja Tubes and pair it with an aftermarket Winch for various recovery situations. This helps you make it to you destination and back safely and reliably without being left stranded in the wilderness. A Roof Rack or cargo management system also increases your Bronco's utility, making it easier to carry gear, bikes, kayaks and anything else you want to bring along. Choosing one of these exterior accessories is a great way to get more out of your overland excursions, so pick some out today to start adventuring like the pros.

Maintenance Tips for Summer

Before embarking on your summer adventures, ensure your Bronco is in top condition. Check the fluid levels (coolant, oil, brake fluid), inspect the brakes, and ensure the air conditioning system is working efficiently for those hotter days. Regular maintenance not only extends the life of your vehicle but also ensures safety on the road and trails. Embrace the warmth of summer and the call of the wild with a Bronco equipped to take on anything. Let the adventures begin!
